M2301: Statistics: The chocolate edition in Splash! Spring 2012 (Apr. 21 - 22, 2012)
Ever wanted to learn statistics while trying to be a chocolate snob? Here's your opportunity! In this class, we'll gather data on your expert opinions on a variety of chocolates, and then perform statistical analyses on the data. We'll see if you and your classmates agree or disagree in your tastes, and determine how meaningful our results are! We'll also briefly go over some of the other ways that researchers use these statistics. Finally, we'll discuss ways to create a statistical model based on existing data.


M2302: Overview of machine learning in Splash! Spring 2012 (Apr. 21 - 22, 2012)
You may have heard the phrase "machine learning" used in a lot of contexts—this is your opportunity to discover what it's all about! We'll go over some of the techniques used in machine learning, show many examples of its wide range of applications, and perform a brief demo. Come prepared to explore and learn about this exciting field!

E1141: Voice and Musical Special Effects on the Computer in Splash! Fall 2010 (Nov. 13 - 14, 2010)
Want to edit how your voice or music sounds on the computer? Want to see what the sound waves look like when you sing? In this class, we’ll make an audio sample of you talking, singing, or playing a musical instrument (or if you prefer, use a sound sample that we already have). Then, we’ll see what it looks like on the computer, and add special effects to it! For example: changing pitch, changing duration, flanging, mixing. We’ll also briefly take a look at the math behind the special effects.


S1143: Medical Imaging: It’s What People Are Like On the Inside That Counts in Splash! Fall 2010 (Nov. 13 - 14, 2010)
Ever wondered how doctors get images that look inside human bodies? And once they get them, how they use them to diagnose a problem? In this class, we’ll take a look at how scanners of different types (CT, MRI, X-Ray, Ultrasound) work, what the images look like, and how they’re used in medicine. We’ll also discuss what the challenges are in getting good scan images, and new ways to get the most useful information out of them. Come with lots of curiosity and questions about how and why medical imaging is such an exciting topic today!
